Hi,
I bought a potted calla liliy plant that had 2 blooms in it. The blooms lasted for about 2 months in doors and then started aging (so i call it) and then i cut the old, spent blooms and I also took out some bulbs from the pot (which were not the ones that had the blooms on them and planted them in the garden.

The bulbs that remained in the pot are now wilting and some of the leaves are turning yellow as well.

What is wrong with my calla lilies that are in the pot? What is it that I should do at this point in time?

Please help

Hi dbosblondie
Calla Lillies will die back after they have bloomed just like tulips. After the leaves start to turn yellow you can remove the tubers from the pot. Wash the soil off and let them dry in a warm place for 3 to 7 days . This will allow a skin to form on them. You should then allow them to sit in a cool dark place 40 to 50 degrees for at least 2 months before you replant them

dbosblondie Yes they generally bloom late spring early summer weather dependent. They usally bloom for up to 6 weeks then they start to dieback and come back for next year.

Calla lilies are sturdy, bold plants characterized by dark and glossy leaves and striking, cupped blooms that sit atop a long, leafless shoot. Available in white and shades of pink, purple, green and yellow, Calla lilies thrive outdoors in zones 7 to 10 and indoors as potted houseplants in all zones. Understanding how to care for potted Calla lilies will help your plant thrive and your flowers stand out beautifully.

•Place your potted Calla lily in a spot that is just shy of full sunlight. A sunny windowsill is a great location in the cooler months. You can place your Calla lilies outside in a sunny location if the temperatures are warmer than 60 degrees F at night.

•2
Keep an eye on the thermometer. Calla lilies prefer the air temperature to hover around 70 degrees F. Be sure to keep your potted plants away from heating ducts in the winter and the air conditioning vents in the summer.

•3
Water your Calla lilies. Potted Calla lilies need moist soil at all times; however, you do not want to overwater your plants. Soaking wet soil can lead to the growth of a fungus rot that affects the Calla lily's roots and rhizome or the underground part of the stem. Be sure to allow excess water to drain from the bottom of the flowerpot.

•4
Use mulch. Adding mulch to your Calla lily's soil mixture helps the soil retain moisture without becoming saturated. Choose mulch that is insect resistant, such as cedar, to keep the pests from eating your plant.

•5
Feed your Calla lily. Potted Calla lilies need to be fed a mild solution of balanced liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks while they are flowering. Feed your Calla lily once a month if the plant is showing signs of active growth but not flowering. If your Calla lily plant has dark tips on its leaves, this might indicate you are using too much fertilizer. Cut back on the amount of fertilizer you feed it.

•6
Enjoy your Calla lily blooms. Potted Calla lilies typically bloom within 2 to 3 months of being planted. The flowers usually bloom for 4 to 6 weeks.

•7
Repot your plants. Calla lilies need to be repotted and fertilized once a year to provide them with fresh soil. Once your plant's bloom has withered, prune the dead leaves and the stem. Remove the bulb from the soil and allow it to dry out for 3 to 4 weeks. Once the shell of the bulb has hardened, repot the bulb in fertilized soil that is 2 to 4 inches deep. Repeat the steps listed above.
